The best tip I recently learned of is a post mentioning the Taubman technique. I watched a few videos because I wondered if my piano playing was aggravating on old impact injury to my right hand pinky (5). After a weekend of extend practice time, the pinky joint would remain infl...

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
5 hours ago
terminaldegree, thanks, that's quite what I thought too. I have just one small remark. I believe an ideal piano action is not spring loaded because springs tend to give back pressure to your fingers hence make it difficult to give proper momentum to hammers, i.e. precise velocity...

I'm with Mark C on the need for balance to keep your sanity. I think that beyond a certain point, extra hours of practice can be counter-productive (major musicians say this, not just me!) Good luck with it, and please do allow yourself to breathe and live while pursuing your pa...

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

Some digital pianos have done a great job of integrating the physical keys and sounds. I think the quality of the samples can be a bit hit-or-miss. If you want to get a feel for sampled pianos, there are a few free ones worth trying out on the free sforzando player: >> Fi...

Thank you for the replies! Ed, Thank you especially for the details. I happen to have a bottle of Citrisolve at the moment, so I'll probably go with that. (I am also well supplied with paint thinner, but that's another story...) I didn't want to dissolve the actual finish on...

Interesting discussion...I suppose if you wanted to eliminate the quirks of the acoustic action, you could revert back to simple spring actions with touch sensitivity. One of the troubles not mentioned already is you’re fighting 140 years of piano pedagogy that has optimized de...

Yet more from "Improvising Blues Piano". I'm not exactly reaping the "variety" benefit from the challenge! This one is not at tempo - I forget if I recorded it at 100 or 108bpm but either way it is well short of the 120bpm suggested. However, time to move on....
